DescriptionUlysses S. Grant: A Gorgeous Photo Badge, Presumably from 1868. In pristine condition, this tour-de-force is probably a manufacturer's sample or trial piece. The central photo is surrounded by borders of red, blue, silver, and ultimately gold. The silver, red and blue portions are covered with thin glass, held in place by the raised ornamental gold frame. The reverse suggests that it was intended to have a stud back rather than a pin, but it was never completed. In terms of uniqueness, beauty and condition, this must surely be considered one of the very best political photo badges of the pre-celluloid era. Diameter 27 mm. From the Scott W. Dolson Collection.

As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
